Where exactly from sourceforge? The official package at

, or

from the Mercurial repository?

I don't know yet. If you used the official package, has it been
somehow changed? Is doc/ still in it? Maybe the
timestamps are wrong so that it is rebuilt? Could you paste the output
of 'ls -l doc/ inst/ src/' (before building)?

Apart from the question why it is rebuild, I'd also like to know why
rebuilding goes wrong. Can you insert this in '':

and build, and paste the output, so that I see in which file it fails?
If it is 'MFDOCSTRINGS', you can send me this also (better
off-list). If it's another one, I'll have further questions ...
